ICT and Art Connect: Watermans Arts Centre: London: Sunday 19th January

Today was the second day of talks and workshops at the Watermans Arts Centre.

Yesterday we had worked in groups to discuss the merits of collaboration, and the value of mixing arts and technologists to create new innovative art works, new working practices, and transformation of systems, communication, visual culture, and generally how we see the world, live in the world, respond to the world, and experience life…..pretty heavy hey!

Today we started collaborating. Our first test was to experience speed dating with other collaborative artists and technologists in the room. The process was a quick fire succession of 8 x 5 minute speed dating rounds of exploratory conversation, with the sole purpose of finding a suitable collaborative partner to apply for funding within the EU program of ICT and Art Connect.

Possible future ICT and ART connect EU funded project

Myself and Louis conversed with many potential partners during the speed dating experience. I did find one suitable technologist/artist partner who was interested in potentially collaborating. Her name is Claire Thompson, and we will communicate in the future to discuss a potential future Toy Hack Sculpture involving 3D printing.
